25 April is a day of commemoration for Australians. Around the country and overseas we pause to reflect on the service and sacrifice of our defence personnel in the many conflicts in which our country has participated.
There are many stories of note and I recommend to you this one - The Other Anzacs by Peter Rees. It is a moving account of the extraordinary young nurses from Australia and New Zealand who followed our troops to the Great War.
They were renowned for their courage and compassion under appalling conditions experiencing first hand the horrors of Gallipoli and the Western Front.
Lest We Forget
